clay sonic

Only second to Nintendo’s Italian plumber, Sonic the Hedgehog is probably the most recognizable video game character out there. Blue fur, red shoes, and a too-cool-for-school attitude, Sonic looks and acts nothing like his real-life counterpart. If you don’t believe me, check out this Sonic clay figurine, created from scratch by Kia from kiArt: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5RcP3YvjUhc&ab_channel=kiArt…

popsicle stick kalimba

Learning how to play a musical instrument is cool, but learning how to play an instrument you made yourself is way cooler. Using a long piece of wood, some screws, and a ton of Popsicle sticks, YouTuber Mash makes a working kalimba that can play some sick, wood-slapping tunes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sMwvsVVlCuw&ab_channel=Mash Drilling Rows of Holes After…

We all know about naturally reflective surfaces, but who knew you could apply the same effect with a bottle of paint? Dan Rodo of TheDanocracy recently tested out a bottle of Culture Hustle’s MIRROR,  a solvent-based paint that turns any surface into an insanely chrome-like and reflective surface. For £29.99 (a little more than 40…

co2 baseball bat

Baseball: the good-old American pastime (apart from mowing the lawn on Sundays, that is). Contrary to popular belief, the earliest known recorded publication of baseball was found in England all the way back in 1744 and was brought to Canada by the English, which eventually made its way to America. Now there’s your history lesson…

Tama Hand Warming Mug

With 2020 the way it is, celebrating Christmas might be a bit lonely for some. Maybe you’ve been cooped up “two weeks” already. Maybe you’ve thrown off the restraints of government tyranny. Either way, everyone needs a good hug. You can’t do much about social distancing and the rampant virtue signaling, but you can do…

Mezco Fabrication creates all sorts of custom metal fab projects. You may remember the 12 gauge desk organizer we featured a while back, design by Bryan Lagrange, CAD Manager at Mezco. Well, recently he shared a very cool, custom fire pit design which includes a top cover that converts it into a chimenea. Based in…

MakerOS V2

MakerOS produces a cloud-based system designed to assist companies “making” things for others. While that sounds straightforward, it’s actually quite a complex set of tasks: product designs must be iterated, discussed with clients, invoices sent, files shared, and more. All of this must be tracked as well, and done at scale. MakerOS provides a platform…

beyou chair

Have you ever sat on a chair and thought, “Man, I wish there was a more comfortable place to sit”? Well, there is – it’s called the sofa. Still, the limitations of the conventional office chair limit you to sitting, ooooor shifting from one butt cheek to the other. Try sitting another way and you’ll…

franky's pillow

Different pillow types fit different people. I, for instance, like rock-hard pillows and can’t stand pillows that are too soft and airy. You might think the opposite, which is why pillow companies work tirelessly to create a wide variety of choices for those with distinct sleeping patterns and behaviors. There have been countless attempts to…
